The work explores how an altered context informs social relations and actions. The consideration of structural elements as language of a space, thus in site specific interventions, the manipulation of library computer screens as structures to deconstruct socially defined spaces and their uses, their history and playful possibilities. By way of appropriation, repetition, and from the ideas left by the –almost gone– Institutional Critique movement, I drew an almost invisible situation that suggest alternative perceptions of a place.
Starting from the context of CalArts library, as a marginal space to present art, I came with the idea of an intervention in the computers–a screensaver–The Haunted Screensavers (2014). Two screensavers: one minute scene of the haunted forest from “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” (1936) directed by Walt Disney, and the other one, three second gif taken from the internet a series of cartoon eyes blinking in the dark. This one recalls the eyes that haunt Snow White. Both screensavers were installed alternately on each computer at the CalArts Library for one day (December 11, 2014).
